U3A Groups

U3A Groups

Berwick upon Tweed u3a is a registered charity. There is no minimum age, but a focus on people who are no longer in full-time employment or raising a family. Our founders envisaged a collaborative approach with peers learning from each other. The u3a movement was to be self-funded, with members not working towards qualifications but learning purely for pleasure.

Berwick upon Tweed u3a operates under the umbrella of The Third Age Trust (a national registered charity), which offers advice, support and information to individual u3as nationwide to help their organisations run smoothly. There are over 400,000 members nationally in over 1000 towns, cities and villages.

All u3as are run completely independently by their members, for their members and have their own range of interest groups offering many topics and activities.

Here at Berwick upon Tweed u3a we fill our days (and some evenings) with taking part in group activities.

We learn through sharing and exchanging skills and interests in small friendly groups, and most importantly, we have a lot of fun and laughter doing so. Currently, we have over 40 different activity groups from Archaeology to Woven Tapestry.
